Fat Kitty 2

I’ve had my cat for about a year now. When I got him, he weighed about twelve pounds. Now he weighs over fifteen.

To put that in perspective, imagine gaining 20% of your body weight. Now put down the phone number for Weight Watchers, and return to the post.

He was a bit skinny when I first got him, so when I switched him off the Fancy-Schmancy (read: astoundingly expensive) food he was on because it was giving him digestion issues, I was initially pleased to notice he wasn’t so bony.

But then the other night he came to sleep on my chest, and I thought he was about to crack one of my ribs.

I did the old weigh yourself, then weigh yourself holding the cat bit and while I’ve lost about five pounds from being sick, I discovered the reason the kitty snores so loud now.

Hopefully Fat Boy food doesn’t cost as much as Fancy-Schmancy food. Or come with similar…digestion issues.

    Casey’s fat, too. I’m talking FAAAAAAT. I bought a different version of the top-tier Pro Plan food that’s specially made for fat indoor cats who don’t get much exercise. It’s supposed to help him lose weight. We’ll see.

    We only feed our cats 2x a day now. They have all lost about a pound each.
